    Recreating my family favorites

    For those who knew me way back when I used to be on APUG religiously, I thought I'd share a project my kids and I have set out to complete this summer.

    I discovered a love for photography when my kids were relatively small, and that's fortunate. I have lots and lots of early shots of them, from fairly amateur (read: embarrassingly "bad" images) to more evolved. We recently moved to a new house and in the process, I came across a box of 4x6's that I had totally forgotten about. There were some gems in there. Since my oldest son is about to be off to boot camp as a US Marine, we're all feeling a bit nostalgic, and had the idea that we would pick out our favorites and loosely recreate them. We're referring to it as "then and now", and having a great time making new memories in the process.

    I'm sharing them here, since by necessity they have to be displayed together, and that's a little more digital involvement (only for the purpose of showing two shots together) than I feel comfortable posting in the gallery.

    Cheryl, those are superb! Gorgeous, gorgeous kids and a truly wonderful idea. I've read articles from you here and visited your website (audio and visual) in the past and have really enjoyed all of your contributions. (Yes, I know, sounding like a stalker here... but there's a great deal to admire... and aspire to! ) Thank you for even more inspiration.

    Thanks, everyone. It's been fun, for sure, and also entertaining to me to see images I took so early on in my photography experience. The "before" images in the three above were made only a year or two after I "discovered" photography. We have some really funny ones coming up -- my boys will have to rebuild their old lemonade stand. Ha.

    Great project Cheryl, well done!
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.
